Preventive care includes services aimed at screening for disease and identifying potential warning signs as early as possible. Based on the results of those screening tests and evaluations, you and your healthcare provider can develop a comprehensive plan of care aimed at preventing disease and maintaining optimal health.
At Wellesley Medical, a physical exam is at the heart of our preventive care program. Preventive physical exams include:
evaluation of height and weight
blood pressure measurement
evaluation of other vital signs
checking ears, eyes, and throat
listening to your lungs and heart
body fat measurement
lab work for metabolic functioning, blood sugar levels, cholesterol, and other factors
and other services we deem necessary to your health
Once these screening and diagnostic tests and evaluations are performed, we'll use the information we've gathered to determine a plan of action to make sure you have the best health you possibly can.
Beyond regular physical exams, our staff provides some preventive services with each visit, regardless of the cause, to keep an eye on your health and serve as a “mini-screening” for potential health problems. These services include a check of your vital signs like blood pressure, weight and height measurements, and body mass index measurement.
Having an annual preventive exam, especially if you're 35 or older or you have a personal or family history of specific diseases, is a good idea. Insurance companies provide a certain number of preventive visits free of charge. Contact your insurance company to find out about coverage limits to make sure you make the most of your plan benefits.
We accept major PPO plans and Medicare insurance plans. We also offer affordable options for those without insurance or with High Deductible insurance plans. We are not on network with any HMO plans or medi-cal. Below is a short-list of just some of the plans we accept. Please contact our office with any questions.
